2:00 am
>> unbelievable. >> all the parents out there pulling their hair out this morning. "early start" continues right now on day 21 of the government shutdown. i have the absolute right to declare a national emergency. >> the white house considering taking money for disaster relief in puerto rico, texas, california and florida to build his border wall. 800,000 federal workers will not get a paycheck today. the drastic steps some are taking to get through the shutdown. mark your calendars, michael cohen set to testify publicly before the house next month. what we could learn from that testimony. and breaking overnight in wisconsin, a teenage girl missing nearly three months has been found alive. dramatic story ahead. good morning, welcome to "early start." i'm dave briggs. >> and i'm christine romans.
2:01 am
it is january 11, 5:00 a.m. in the east. let's talk about the shutdown. the administration now actively looking for funds to use for building a border barrier if and when president trump declares a national emergency. one source under consideration, billions in unspent sdas der recovery money meant to help victims in puerto rico, texas, florida, california. that's right, taking that money, using it for the wall. the president now warning that he will declare a national emergency if talks with democrats to end the government shutdown stay at standstill. >> if this doesn't work out, probably i will do it. i would almost say definitely. this is a national emergency. >> precise language. the declaration would be subject to immediate court challenge and even trump's advisers have told him it probably wouldn't work legally, but there are not many other paths out of a shutdown that at midnight becomes the
2:02 am
longest in modern american history. jim acosta traveled with the president and filed this report for us. >> reporter: president trump came down to the border here in mcallen to get a sense of the situation down here, talked with law enforcement officials and other border patrol agents. at one point he described the situation as being under attack. it was an odd case to make because he was sitting in one of the safest communities in the country, mcallen consistently ranked one of the most secure communities in the united states. but yet the president tried to make the case that this community and others are under attack, trying to bolster his case potentially to declare a national emergency so he can secure funding for his wall. here's more of what he had to say. >> we're certainly under attack by criminal gangs, by criminals themselves, by the human traffickers and by drugs of all kinds. much of it comes through the southern border. >> reporter: he made several misleading statements.
2:03 am
at one point he told reporters that he never said that next come would hand over a big check to pay for the wall. of course during the campaign, the president repeatedly said that mexico would pay for a wall and at various points he said, yes, mexico would actually deliver a payment to the american people to fund that wall. as a matter of fact, his campaign put out a document saying that mexico could end this once and for all and hand over to the united states a payment, a one time payment they put it of $5 billion to $10 billion. republicans in the senate ditching an 11th hour plan to find a compromise after president trump rejected it. the measure included border wall funding and temporary protections for d.r.e.a.m.ers. house democrats passing two spending bills, 12 republicans joining them to pass the first measure, which would reopen the transportation department and housing and urban development. but as phil mattingly reports, it may be all for nothing. >> reporter: for a brief moment there was hope, not hope that
2:04 am
there was going to be a solution to the government shutdown, but hope because at least people were talking. to be specific, a group of republican senators, senators who had expressed frustration at the president's strategy, who had said they didn't want a shutdown at all, that they wanted to find a way out. they had been working since wednesday night on a proposal that would essentially trade daca protections on a temporary basis for the money that president trump asked for for the wall. that deal fell completely apart. why? because president trump rejected it. how did the top senator who is working out this deal feel? take a listen to lindsey graham. >> i have never been more depressed about moving forward than i am right now. i just don't see a pathway forward. somebody is going to like get some energy to fix this. >> reporter: and graham in that statement is really kind of talking for all 535 members of congress, at least those that i've spoken with over the last couple days. there is recognition that there is no clear pathway out. both parties are entrenched that their positions are not moving and at the near term, there is
2:05 am
no legislative solution at the moment for a fix for a way out of the government shutdown. there is a real question right now whether or not this is not going to go days, whether this is actually going to end up going weeks. and is it going to be solved anytime soon? talks aren't continuing. meetings aren't scheduled. the senate won't be back until next week and house democrats are still passing individual funding bills that mitch mcconnell has made clear he won't take up. so a lot of aides are looking to the national emergency. lindsey graham is saying that is really the only path left, something the democrats have made clear that they will quickly take to court, see if they can block it. so a fight will continue. when it is over is still an open question. what is not an open question, that the government will remain shut down likely for a while. >> federal workers staging protests across the country as they prepare to go without their first full paychecks since the government shutdown started.
2:06 am
in washington, the president of the afl-cio was joined by hundreds of federal workers demanding an end to the shutdown. and in utah, listen to this protester, she is resorting to desperate measures. >> i have enough for one more mortgage payment and then i have to go to carmax tomorrow and sell my car. >> you're going to sell your car? >> i have to. >> and in atlanta, tsa workers led a protest against the shudown at hartsfield jackson. michael cohen will testify publicly before the house overnight committee on february 7. cohen was sentenced to three years in prison on multiple charges including campaign finance crimes, and lying to congress. he implicated the president in a scheme it pay hush money to two women claiming they had affairs with then citizen trump. here's what cohen told abc after
2:07 am
his sentencing in december. >> i'm done with the lying. i'll done being loyal to president trump. i followed a bad path. and hence how we started this conversation. i have my freedom. and i will not be the villain as i told you once before. i will not be the villain of his story. >> the house intelligence committee also wants cohen to testify about the russia investigation, that would have to happen behind closed doors. new developments in the russia investigation. this morning turns out special counsel robert mueller interviewed donald trump's top campaign polster in february of last year. a man named tony fabrizio. fabrizio also happens to be an ex-business associate of paul manafort. that could be significant. we know mulely is investigating why manafort shared internal polling data with the russian military intelligence operative while he was running the trump campaign. let's bring in michael moore, former u.s. attorney for
2:08 am
the middle district of georgia. >> good to see you, sir. >> glad to have your expertise. you heard that story about tony fabrizio. we had details this week about paul manafort sharing polling data with someone tied closely to russian intelligence. wrap that all together for us and tell us what this signals to you about the russia investigation. >> you know, it was a significant story because it is really the first time that we're hearing some directive from the campaign being shared back and forth with people linked to possible russian intelligence so now we're finding out that mueller talked to the polster months and months ago. so he's had this information. and we wouldn't though about the whole story if not for unfortunate sources trying to redact information from the mueller team.
2:09 am
and mueller has put this on a path we're now seeing that there was money owed to manafort, there is information passing back and forth. nobody believes that manafort just drops out of the sky and decides that he is going to be donald trump's campaign chair or nor does anybody believe i believe that trump just picks him for particular reason without something else there. so it is significant. i think that it is starting to put the pieces of the puzzle together. what will be important for mueller to look at and i think what we'll see is in fact what is the timing here. what happened when the information was shared. was it about the same time that we saw russian troll activity, was it a time that we saw an uptick in the facebook posts and other things that were fake news and stories that maybe apparently the russian group may have been putting on out. it will be about the timing, it will be about tracking in money. >> so we learned a lot yesterday. we learned a lot more -- we will learn more on february 7 when michael cohen will testify in a
2:10 am
public session before the house. he will also have what we believe is a closed door session probably about the russia investigation with adam schiff and company. but what might america learn when michael cohen testifies before the public and the cameras? >> well, they have tried to attack cohen for a long time now saying that he is not credible and that he is a confessed liar basically. i think from the public side we'll have a chance to eyeball him, see what he has to say, to hear what his version of events are. and really sort of judge his credibility. that is why you want a live witness, you want to look him in the face. and so we'll get that for the first time and not have to read what he had to say off of court documents or snippets from a particular interview somewhere. i think that it will be significant to hear about the transfer of the money. remember the president denied that onner a for air force one president. clearly we now know cohen has implicated him in some federal election crimes. and that is a big deal.
2:11 am
if you really just kind of -- we've had so much craziness out there circling the white house that we maybe are not as impressed by some of the stories and the facts that are there. but it is a big deal when the president of the united states is implicated in the federal crime. >> we have a pretty thick skin these days. let's listen to the president talking about whether he would declare a national emergency at the border about that. >> i have the absolute right do a national emergency if i want. >> what is your threshold? >> my threshold is if i can't make a deal with that apeople t unreasonable. >> so the legal standing on whether he can declare a national emergency, does it hold up? >> i don't think that the lawmakers and our founding fathers intended for the president just to be able to drag us into a national emergency just because they can't get their way. and that's where we're at. there is a basis for a disagreement. democrats don't want to fund the wall.
2:12 am
my question is ultimately and i think that we'll see this as we go forward, his position is so transparent because he is just moving forward now that he can't get a deal and get the money he wants. so was there not an emergency last year, was there not one the year before, why didn't you call us into a national emergency -- why doing it only now that you can't get your way on this budget deal. but those things are going to be pretty clear. andle i also i do want to say think that it can weaken the powers of the presidency to have this kind of nonsense thrown out. let's talk about future presidents and what it means to declare a national emergency. this is meant for true emergencies. what i call true crises and not fabricated things and not just because you can't get a deal cut. so you will see legal challenges, you will see the court probably step in and pick a decision. there will be a question about who has standing. does the congress have standing or will another group come in and do that.
2:13 am
>> we'll talk more in about a half an hour. mike pence in 2014 when obama went around congress called it a profound mistake. lindsey graham says it is wrong and irresponsible. so we'll discuss are more about that. >> he said that in 2014 when it was obama. all right. michael moore, come back and we'll talk more. after nearly three months of searching, a wisconsin teen has been found alive. >> she's okay. i just cannot believe this. >> what we know so far about her rescue. cauliflower but that's not stopping anyone o, that's good! from capital one.nd i switched to the spark cash card i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy. and last year, i earned $36,000 in cash back. which i used to offer health insurance to my employees. what's in your wallet? pain from chest congestion can make this... when you have a cold, ...feel like this.

2:39 am
russia developments and start with the president preparing to their a national emergency or so it seems. 58 times a president has declared a national emergency since 1976. how many involve a policy goal that they didn't win congressional approval for? zero. this would be the first time it has ever happened. and as a reminder, here is how the president would justify a national emergency. listen. >> i have the absolute right do a national emergency if i want. >> what is your threshold for when you might -- >> my threshold will be if i can't make a deal with people that are unreasonable. >> wow. did he undermine his entire argument for there being a national emergency, does he have the legal standing and what court challenges might a wait the president? >> not only does he undermine his entire argument, but he really undermines the authority and powers of presidents to come. and that is by declaring an emergency when there is not one. the idea behind a president having the authority to come in and declare a national emergency
2:40 am
is such that so if we have a true crisis, if we have something like an attack, if we are have something -- some terrible disaster, then a president is authorized to come in and make a move or to move some money around so that the u.s. can respond in a certain way. it was never intended to be a tool for a president to come in who simply didn't get his way and throw a tantrum, say in a i can't cut a deal, i can't gin up my base and so i'm going to declare this emergency. so he is clearly i think off base. i think that his close advisers know that. i think that you have people who don't have the courage to tell him that. you have certain leaders in the congress who are too wishy-washy and too worried about currying favor to tell him that candidly. but i do think that we'll see court challenges. the question will be, mr. president, you say there is an emergency now, why wasn't there an emergency last year or the year before. why is it now just are when you
2:41 am
can't get a deal on the budget. so when we move into the court challenges, the question will be the extent of his executive authority and ultimately i think too we may find ourselves in the supreme court and i know that john roberts is particularly concerned about the integrity and legacy of institutions. i think that he will see this as an abuse of power and he will be worried about not only protecting the reputation of the court, but also protecting the reputation of the oval office for years to come and i think you'll see him say that this is not a -- a no gsh dou-go. >> and it wasn't that long ago when there were concerns about anoff reach of p overreach of p. listen to some republican leadership unhappy with president obama. >> this is wrong. it is irresponsible. and will do damage to our efforts to fix a broken immigration system. this is a tremendous presidential overreach. i will try to defund the effort for him to go to alone. we will challenge him in court.
2:42 am
>> and imposing his will unilaterally may seem tempting, it may serve him politically in the short term. but he knows that it will make an already broken system even more broken. and he knows this is not how democracy is supposed to work. >> this is not how democracy is supposed to work. that was 2014. a different president, but two men who are still in leadership positions here. >> that's right. and these cries of indignation, with all depends on whose ox is being gored, right? people get upset when it is not their folks. and they were making references, you had lindsey graham who now is openly -- we just saw urging the president trying to move forward because he can't get cut a deal. that is not how we reopen government, how we solve budget issues by declaring a national crisis and using those extraordinary powers. >> and mike pence said in 2014, it is not leadership, it is a profound mistake.
2:43 am
